A Valley man has been targeted twice in one year by a team of thieves and he wants everyone to be on alert after he caught a brazen burglary on camera.

It happened at a home near 24th Street and Indian School Road around 6:00 a.m. on Sunday.

The homeowner says his home surveillance camera system caught a truck drive by and then pull right in front of his air conditioning repair truck.

"They are very quick, within two minutes they are in and out with $2,000 worth of specialty tools,” said David, the victim.

Two men hopped out and used a hammer and a screw driver to pop the lock on the truck. They took with them expensive and specialized repair tools, including jugs of Freon, which cost around $750 a piece.

"When I saw those missing, I immediately thought they know what they're doing,” said David.

One of the suspects appears to have a tattoo on his leg and arm. The other is of heavier set and was wearing a dark t-shirt and shorts.

The victim believes they had been casing his house. The crooks got away in an early 2000’s dark green Dodge Durango.

David says Phoenix police are investigating another car burglary in nearly the same area around the same time. He says it likely matches the description of the SUV captured in his video.

If you know the suspects in the video, call Phoenix police.
